MCI Grants a 150 seat UG approval to Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences

Lucknow: Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences (RMLIMS),  has received a 150 seat approval from the Medical Council of India (MCI), to start  an MBBS course from July this year. The announcement comes as another ray of hope for medical aspirants of the state.

Lucknow with this addition will now have two medical colleges offering an MBBS to super specialty course range. Till now it was, only King George’s Medical University(KGMU), that  provided an MBBS course along with post graduate medical studies.

“The executive committee of the MCI has approved the 150 MBBS seats at Lohia institute in its meeting held recently. The department was informed about the same on Monday,” said Dr V N Tripathi, Director General,Medical Education.

“The approval to our proposal has finally come from the MCI. Almost 90% of the faculty recruitment has been done. We are all ready to take in admissions from July,” said Director, RMLIMS, Dr Deepak Malviya.

The institute presently runs four super specialty courses and six  MD/MS courses at the post graduate level.

In its December 2016 held meeting, the MCI had pointed out a number of shortcomings in  the RMLIMS’s proposal, leading to denial of approval by the central government. However,approval did come after  compliance of the MCI directives. Earlier, there was only  53.42% of faculty appointments, while   a shortage of 70.02% resident doctors existed.

Alongside these approvals has come the MCI’s nod to grant permanent recognition to  Kannauj Medical College for the next five years. The college currently has 100 MBBS seats, with the medical education department planning to initiate  PG studies as well reports the TOI.
